Worst place av stayed in.
I thought i booked a hotel room but got a lodge. So dated it smelt of really old. The sofa was well over used. Oven didnt work. My husband waited 40 mins for a cold cooked breakfast. No information from staff had to find everything out yourself. No kids menu so had to trave 4 miles to eat. Beautiful area stunning views. But i hate self catering. And dogs everywhere. Wont be back. Sorry but so dated its awful.

The setting is amazing and plenty of beautiful scenery and lovely walks for all! The rooms were very clean but extremely dated and really could do with an update.

8/10 Very Good

Beautiful location, outdated accommodation
The location of this property is simply outstanding, and if you spend most of your time outdoors like we did, then you can overlook the dated feel of the apartment. We booked fully knowing it needed modernisation as it's clear from reading the reviews, and it didn't spoil our holiday in any way. The negatives first: - the apartment had a musty smell which needed a bit of Fabreze spraying around. - There was no Nespresso machine as advertised on their website. - The DVD player was only scart compatible and the TV only HDMI compatible, with no existing connection between them. I pointed this out to reception on 3 occassions and each time I was told housekeeping would be informed. Not once did anyone get back to me so we gave up on DVD nights with the kids which would have been fun. - Quite a few bulbs weren't working throughout the apartment. Such a simple fix surely but it kind of sums up the accommodation. Right, the positives: + Location is stunning and the grounds around the hotel are beautiful. + We ate in the hotel restaurant once and the food and service were excellent. + Loads of walks and activities in the area so bring your walking shoes! + The view from the window of our apartment was amazing. Huge window overlooking the hotel grounds and the loch and mountains beyond. + Hotel swimming pool was great. Kids loved it as it was quite warm.
